Book Review
4 of 5 stars to The Cat Who Wasn't There, the 14th book in the "Cat Who" cozy mystery series, written in 1992 by Lilian Jackson Braun. This might be one of my favorite books in this series, as it takes the story on a new adventure. Qwill is on a trip to Scotland and the cats are left behind in Pickax. How will the solve the crime this time? Well... they do... thru odd behaviors with the cat sitter. More Polly in this one! And a change of scenery, with a good mystery, help make this a fun read. Plus, I love Scotland, so I will always read stories about it. Maybe I'll get there one day, too. As for this one, lots of history, interesting characters, especially when one disappears off the bus tour. Kicks off a great mystery and a lot of questions to try to figure out what's behind the entire thing -- as well as why and how does Qwill get himself involved in these things. If you want to sample the book series, this is good, but it won't give you the flavor of Pickax. So maybe read this one as your third or fourth, if you don't plan to read the whole series in order.
